Logo for Auckland based brand strategy and design firm Brian R Richards

Brian R Richards (BRR) is a brand strategy and design firm based in Auckland, New Zealand. Their identity, a triple letter monogram, is part of a complete and bespoke typeface solution that explores the ideas of reductionism and the balance between type, form and shape.

I was recently asked to publish more type-based identities and I think this is a solid example and a recent finalist of the Best Awards. The BRR logo-mark, built from the modernist abstraction of characters, seems to move between two and three dimensional forms creating depth and duality while the overlays and transparent execution draws together the ideas of integration and collaboration. The typeface, the foundation of the identity system, is neatly utilised to create further monograms for the BRR employees and essentially constructs a brand suite with people at the heart. The colour highlights add a touch of contrast against the restraint of the grey and build on its simple and modernist aesthetic.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
